Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience: Learning & Memory, Alzheimer's disease, mice
I am a Hispanic female and a first-generation graduate student to pursue research in the field of neuroscience. I have a unique educational background, I received two Bachelors, one in Mathematics and one in Psychology (both from Virginia Tech) as well as a Master’s in Public Health before entering the PhD program in Cognitive Behavioral Neuroscience. I'm currently researching the effects of the environment learning and memory in Alzheimer's disease mice.
